Senator Mitch McConnell states that the electoral voting system is, “Designed to promote good government and legislation that forwards the common good of a large and diverse nation.” He believes that just because the electoral voting system does not please many people and sometimes may not elect the president that everyone thinks should be the president does not make the system have enough flaws to just cast it out. It exists for many reasons, but mainly for choose the right person for the job. It is the system that keeps the government and its people together like a “linchpin,” as he states. If it were to be removed, the nation could collapse. The electoral college voting system is that exists today to keep the nation going, without having to battle the wrong decisions made by uneducated people.
Fallacies in political speeches: Donald Trump announces he is running for president. Donald Trump’s one very distinct “ability” is making a vast amount of people react to what he says. Be it good or bad, this makes him gain more attention not only in the United States, but all over the world. At the end of the day, what really matters is if his statements have, in fact, any effect on people’s votes. So for those who are not yet sure about his sincerity, it only takes a not to deep analysis of his speeches to spot serious fallacies.
Divorce is at its highest rate ever and I believe this is because couples have too much pride and self-entitlement today. Also politicians, for example Hilary Clinton, are so swaying with their views in order to please everyone that its hard to tell how they really feels. Opposite of Kreon, who stuck to his views and refused to consider anyone else’s. Kreon reminds me of Donald Trump, they want so much credit and respect, and expect everyone to blindly follow them. The presidential candidates this election truly scares me because there isn’t one person with a middle ground.
Walls do not make a social environment, nor make a good neighbor; all they do is keep people away. Over the past months, billionaire Donald Trump has taken the political world by shock. He announced that was running for the Republican party to be president. Trumps campaigns were very successful, but one, the announcement of the wall on the border of Mexico.This announcement caused mixed feelings, people wanted the wall, and people were strongly against it. The wall should not be built.
Greetings, my name is Michael Konovalov and I am writing to you with concerns pertaining campaign financing in present day United States. It is of great interest to my constituents and to me that the past several decades have brought up a trend that is worrisome. The amount of money being spent to fund campaigns has skyrocketed. For a democratic system where power to the people is greatly preached the increasing influence of money on politics is unacceptable. As yet another presidential election is around the corner, there are no signs that these trends will halt.
In Document C, Samples provides a federalist argument for supporting the electoral college by stating that it gives states an important role in choosing the president and thus supporting a fundamental principle of our democracy. The problem with Sample’s argument is that the electoral college is in essence undemocratic. We know that the electoral college is undemocratic because not only are small states over represented but a citizens vote can be weighted more or less depending on the state in which they reside in. In Document F, we are told what happens in case of a tie or no one winning the electoral vote. In case of this situation occurring then the House of Representatives will decide on who becomes president where state representatives will all get an equal vote.
The D in Donald is for Disaster In heat of the upcoming Presidential Election, the United States has become extremely divided based upon who is supporting whom. Being as opinionated as us Americans can be, a lot of inappropriate things have been said from both the candidates and their supporters. One candidate in particular whose opinions have affected the most people, is also leading in the polls, Donald Trump. I think if Donald Trump becomes our 47th president our government will be a racist, unjust, dictatorship. Donald Trump has made it extremely clear that he himself is a racist, so in result his government supporting him will be the same thing.
After the civil war, the question of “what’s next” was the main focus throughout politics, the government and the country. Abraham Lincoln was president during that time and he had a plan for reconstruction he hoped would bring the nation back together quickly and easily without too many harsh punishments or difficulties. Unfortunately, after Lincoln was murdered, his Vice President, Andrew Johnson had a plan for reconstruction that was different than Lincoln’s and many disagreed with Johnson’s views and ideas. Radical Republicans, were a large majority of the people who did not like Johnson the most, and so they came up with a reconstruction plan of their own as well, however only one was put into place and it changed the future of the United States forever. President Lincoln developed a reconstruction plan called the “Ten Percent Plan”.
January 20th 2017 marked the day that president elect Donald Trump took his oath to office. Perhaps one of the most controversial electoral processes in the history of the United States’ presidency, the possible implications of Donald Trump’s leadership will most likely make this one for the history books. His speech seemed surprisingly reasonable, astonishingly efficient, and very impactful in comparison to what many were expecting from him, because of the negative and possible detrimental image he has created in the minds of many Americans. Regardless, Donald Trump delivered a strong, decisive speech using unifying diction, well directed symbolism and varied syntax. Trump’s primary goal was to identify himself more intricately with the
Out of the 241 million Americans eligible to vote in the 2012 election, a mere 67% actually participated (Rose). By providing political labels, they create unity in values and makes politicians accountable for their legislations. Assuming that Republicans remain a conservative party and the Democrats remain a liberal party, Americans are more likely to support an individual party. Individualists have the opportunity to run as president, but have difficulty doing so because it is difficult to gain support. Political parties are not prescribed by the Constitution but are critical to success of America.
He responded, “You mean it’s not politically correct, and yet everyone uses it? You know what? Give me a better term.” On the flip side, when another Republican candidate, Marco Rubio, was asked about Bush and Trump’s use of the phrase he responded, “… those are human beings.” Even though he does not use the phrase anchor baby and is not ready to repeal the amendment completely, he too is adamant that there is a problem with the law concerning this issue. Democrat, Hillary Clinton, certainly is not missing out on the controversy that is taking place with this issue at hand. She tweeted out in response to Jeb Bush asking for a better term with, “How about "babies," "children," or ‘American
This years presidential debate was the last hope for either candidates to win over the heart’s of voters. This years race to be president has been filled with many different characters. Twenty three candidates in total to be exact. The final candidates being for the republican party Donald Trump, and for the democratic party Hillary Clinton. They both went back and forth at each other making sly remarks, and stating the facts to upgrade their candidacy stock.
The president of the united states should be highly educated and if you 're not I don 't believe you qualified to be president Donald Trump also shouldn’t be president because of what he said about banning muslims. His exact words were “total and complete
Did you know that on election day you do not vote directly for president. Many people don’t like that they don’t ultimintly decide for president. They however don’t understant that it is there for a quite a few reasons. The first is that the founding fathers created the electoral college, second that it ensures that every state gets a say in who the president is, and number three is that it makes sure that the president is chosen by a majority vote and not a popular vote. When the founding fathers built this country they made the electoral college so that the presadent could be picked by an educated population.
In this day and age people are most concerned with being politically correct. A person must be aware of what he or she says and be sensitive to other people 's religious affiliations and cultures. The controversy of the Battle flag is affecting politicians directly in the upcoming elections. Nia-Malika Henderson, Senior Political Reporter, says that, “The flag debate is quickly becoming a major political issue ahead of the state 's crucial first-in-the-South presidential primary next year. Many Republicans, including Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, have avoided taking a position on the flag.” (Henderson) Citizens of America are taking sides on the Battle flag controversy and that plays a major part in how the voters will choose their leaders in the upcoming elections.
